WASHINGTON, DC — Today, Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07) released the following statement after an agreement could not be reached to pass the bipartisan infrastructure framework (BIF).
Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux said, “I would have significantly preferred that the House pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill today so we could start working on long-overdue investments in our physical infrastructure to address congestion, unlock economic opportunity, and make a down payment on tackling climate change. However, I am familiar with tough legislative processes. While this is a setback, I remain committed to working towards a deal that addresses the needs of Georgians and the American people both in the bipartisan bill and the Build Back Better legislation.”
Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux lives with her family in Suwanee, Georgia, and represents Georgia’s 7th Congressional District in the 117th Congress. Carolyn is a strong advocate for affordable health care, and economic recovery that puts workers and small businesses first, and investing in her district’s world-class public education system and transportation infrastructure.
Georgia’s fast-changing 7th Congressional District includes portions of the northeast Atlanta metropolitan area, including portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties and cities Peachtree Corners, Berkeley Lake, Sugar Hill, Norcross, Cumming, Lawrenceville, Duluth, Snellville, Lilburn, Suwanee, Grayson, and Buford.
